Blackberry Foraging in the Florida Heat

This video is over 3 years old but it was deleted when my blog was accidentally deleted. I’m just now getting around to adding it back. It was a fun video to shoot and we had a great time making it. I was pregnant with Anna at the time but it was super, super hot so that wasn’t so fun.
